Volunteers Needed! Help CREW DC Shape the Future of Real Estate

September 15, 2019
Written by: CREW DC
Join CREW DC as we enter the new school year continuing our outreach program - CREW Careers. Through CREW Careers, we mentor female students at a local high school to expose them to career opportunities in commercial real estate.



We are looking for CREW DC members to volunteer in our CREW Lunch Club at Phelps ACE High School in Northeast DC.
 
We need 2 to 3 volunteers for each date/topic listed below:
 
SESSION TOPIC
10/10/2019 Personal Finance
11/7/2019 Networking
12/5/2019 Job Search
1/16/2020 Architecture
2/6/2020 Engineering
3/5/2020 Construction
4/2/2020 Real Estate Finance
5/7/2020 Marketing & Leasing
6/4/2020 Property Management
 
 
We are also seeking companies who will sponsor a lunch session for the students and volunteers.
 
Each session runs from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, over two school lunch periods.  A CREW DC Team Lead will present and coach students in hands-on activities.  Other volunteers will help students one-on-one as they work through the activities. All volunteers will answer general questions about commercial real estate and your specific area of expertise.  

It's a small investment of time and a great way to help transform commercial real estate through the education and advancement of young women.  

Interested? Email Kellie Farster kellief@skaengineers.com with the date you can volunteer.  Let us know if your firm can sponsor a lunch session!  Visit our Flickr page for more photos from last year's CREW Careers sessions.
